    This is game #4 of my 'MUST WIN' games (3 for 3 so far). It will put us 1 game above .500 and should allow us to put the losing streak and bad stretch behind us.

    Interesting to see here tonight will be how much rest Amar'e and Billups get. With Barni and Jose out for tonight, it would be a treat to see douglas and carter + williams and JJ hit the floor for extended minutes. However with seeding still being a concern I expect D'ant will not give them the minutes until we are up on the score board significantly.

    MDA states he will continue to play his regulars to gain team chemistry. Amare said he'll do "anything" to land the 6th seed & isn't ready to rest until the playoff seedings are final. Billups stated that the Knicks still have work to do (catching the 76ers) so I wouldn't expect much rest tonight!

    With the 76ers going into Boston to face the Celtics? With a win tonight? We'll be playing the 76ers for rights to the 6th seed next game baby!

    I hope to see the Knicks make a STATEMENT game tonight. Tip off is right around the corner & I fully expect us to win by 15+. 25-30 for the statement!

    We should easily beat the craptors with Stat and Billups playing 30 minutes or less so I would really like to see them get a bit of rest. Build a lead in the first half, sit them in the 3rd and bring them back for the 4th if we need them.

    We have 5 games left, we need Amare to get rest in all 5 games to have him fresh come round 1.

    Ball movement looks great. To hell with the craptors, we should win by at least 18 toight!

    Still playing excellent hustle defense but we allowed 10 points in a blink of an eye. Oh well... Nice to see Melo going off!

    Good to see us hitting the 3 ball early. Just hope they stop when it stops falling!

    Yes we are playing good effort on D again, if we keep this up for the whole game that will be 4 games on the bounce with above average defensive effort in every game. A turnaround isn't out of the realms of possibility it seems.

    Knicks playing with excellent ball movement thanks to Billups himself with a quick 4 assists here in the first. Billups is back baby

    Great Offense and Defense from the Knicks in the First Quarter and I love the unselfishness out there leading to 10 early assist

    Go second unit!

    Looks like D'Ant's looking for some back court syncing between AC & TD

    And they are showing it! That fast break was beautifully run including the outlet from Shawne Williams over the top, who knew he could throw a pass like that huh?

    I still find it scary that we can play good D and give up 26 in a quarter though!
